Needs Assessment of Application of PB Works in the Classroom Mini Course 


Identify Problem

Technology is part of our students’ lives outside the classroom and should be part of their experience within the classroom.

However, integrating technology into the curriculum can be difficult without resources to help you balance content with technology.



The PB Works mini course will explore the pedagogy of cooperative learning in a wiki space and guide teachers in the creation of their own wiki space on PB Works.

In addition, it will provide a resource for multiple content areas in the integration of wiki technology as a complement to the curriculum.  


Students will reflect on wiki page integration into their curriculum meeting the following objectives:

  • understand benefit of technology integration in 21st century education
  • identify the benefit of wiki pages in cooperative learning
  • classify types of learners that will benefit from wiki collaboration 
  • reflect on success of meeting content objectives in wiki examples
  • reflect on own content that could utilize a wiki


Students will create a PB Works wiki page meeting the following objectives:

  • create a wiki with a front page and one additional page containing images and links 
  • create log-in names and passwords for 5 students to edit the wiki
